ProLipid™ lamellar gels

ProLipid lamellar gels are designed to exert a “second skin” effect, mimicking the unique lamellar organization of stratum corneum lipids. In addition, they enhance the performance of cosmetic formulations and can be used to develop stable lamellar gel networks with a wide range of rheologies and sensory attributes depending on the type of auxiliary ingredients present.
